ANI research infrastructure houses four functional neuroimaging modalities, navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) at Aalto TMS, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at Advanced Magnetic Imaging (AMI) Centre, magnetoencephalography (MEG) at MEG Core and Aalto Behavioral Laboratory (ABL).
AMI Centre facilities - Monitoring systems
AMI offers simultaneous EEG measurements with fMRI. Information such as EEG equipment storage, maintenance, ordering accessories, wiring and use of EEG inside the scanner are demonstrated in the documents page.
AMI Centre has SR Research's MRI compatible EyeLink 1000 eye tracking system. See the document below how to use EyeLink in AMI Centre.
MR Compatible "Face camera" by MRC Systems GmbH can be used to monitor subject's face (or body) during the measurements. For the manual, see the documents page.
Several physiological signals, such as electrocardiogram (ECG), heart rate, respiratory cycle and galvanic skin response can be measured with BIOPAC system. See the documents page for detailed manuals how to measure these signals.

Aalto Behavioral Laboratory (ABL) has various different monitoring and stimulus systems for behavioral studies in controlled environment. The laboratory consists of two measurement rooms: a shielded room which is especially intended for EEG and remote eye tracking measurements; and a room for behavioral measurements which doesn’t require shielded conditions.
Aalto TMS offers researchers unique possibilities for multi-modal neuroimaging techniques. The laboratory contains top-of-the-line electroencelography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) systems.
MEG Core offers excellent environment for MEG measurements. MEG Core has a modern 306-channel MEG device (Elekta Neuromag™, Elekta Oy, Helsinki, Finland) in a high-end 3-layered magneticaly shielded roo (Imedco AG, Hägendorf, Switzerland). MEG Core has extremely low magnetic ambient noise level. MEG Core has a wide variety of MEG-compatible stimulators and monitoring devices.
